Lady Trojans bounce Lowell in NorCal competition

SAN FRANCISCO — The Oak Ridge girls basketball team eliminated host Lowell by 25 points in Tuesday’s Northern California Regional Tournament opener at Kezar Pavilion.

Seniors Natalie Stone and Dakota McLarnan each sank four three-pointers to lead the offense while Jenna Klein keyed the Trojans’ trapping-pressing defense that caused Lowell (28-5) fits.

“They (Lowell) had a hard time with our press and Jenna did a great job up front. That’s the first time in awhile our press has been that good,” Oak Ridge coach Steve White said. “They were small. We had a size advantage and matched up well.”

McLarnan scored 14 points and Stone bucketed 12. Troy led 30-12 at the halftime break.

Next up for Oak Ridge (21-10) is tomorrow’s second-round date at top-seeded Berkeley (28-1) in a rematch of last year’s NorCal finals.

“They’re (Berkeley) very good and have everyone returning except one. It’ll be a tough game,” White said. “We’ll have our work cut out but it’s just one game we have to win, not a series.”
